 :imaposer: you won't believe how a mud patty can lurk in a seemingly dry river bed! I was going along merrily and all of a sudden the front wheel went in, had enough momentum to compress out and then gassed it but the back wheel sank like a brick. Took me 45 mins to dig the damn thing out!  :biggrin:

Jy is donners onsensitief !!!
Die bokkies sal op 'n anner plek moet gaan modder drink - heelwaarskynlik meer as 50m verder

Can someone explain why, except for the dreaded 3month period of seeing tyre tracks, it is forbidden to ride in a riverbed? I am so gatvol of wealthy people buying up land around Stellenbosch and erecting millions of rands of electric fencing, in the process causing our riding place to shrink year after year. A riverbed changes profile on a regular basis anyway, and humans are the only animals stupid enough to want to live too close to it's edge. Sounds like the complaining auntie is just a colonial sitting on a lot of private land in the name of conservation. She also exhibits a very anti-biking approach, and it is this last feature that we must be careful of. Biking will never be socially acceptable, because of movies like "Run angel, run", Rebel without cause, etc, and of cause this auntie. There's buggy tracks on the moon, and she complains of knobbly tracks in a riverbed?!?!?!

Just to react on a few similar posts in this thread:

Rivers (and I assume river beds) are state owned land. The local land owner of the land surrounding the river cannot claim the river is part of his property and therefore has no right to chase you off the river. Beware though, most of them don't know this bit of information and they own guns.

Navigable rivers can be used by boaters.

Chris you are correct and the farmer should have the river edges cleared up to a certain distance for floods.

Botswana's laws are different in this case. The Limpopo River is in fact an International border, and the farms adjacent to the river do not own any part of it, although officially the border is in the centre of the river.
What the problem is that people ride/drive down the river and then inadvertently wander onto private land when wanting to get out. They then make tracks and roads where the area is environmentaly sensitive.
